Angora

Angora is the hair of the Angora rabbit. It’s main distinguishing feature is its fluffy surface texture and its ultra soft touch but did you know that it is also one of the warmest natural fibers? It is said to be 7 times warmer, even, than wool and has been known to be prescribed by doctors in Europe for pain relief. It is so comfortable and a valuable insulator! …. more about Angora

Care of Angora Fiber Yarn: Angora is best hand washed in lukewarm to cold water with a gentle wool wash such as “Soak”. Gently squeeze out excess moisture, roll in a towel to release more moisture and lay flat to dry away from direct heat or sun. In order to ensure the surface remains fluffy a teasel brush can be carefully used to fluff up the fabric after washing although a natural “halo” will develop with normal wear and washing.
